Media sources are also claiming that Fiat, the recently defeated company who lost the battle with Magna over the acquisition of Opel, is also interested in taking over the Swedish unit but details are still unclear in this case.
What's interesting is that Saab earlier this month confirmed the battle for the controlling stake has came down to only two bidders but refused to unveil their names.
"Now we are negotiating with just two parties," Jan-Ake Jonsson told Dagens Industry. "This can go fast now and should absolutely be wrapped up in a maximum of two weeks," he said, adding that a letter of intent may be signed by mid-June.
And things are even more complex than that. Saab said in late May that three investors have expressed their interest in taking over the company, hinting that there might be some truth behind those reports claiming that Koenigsegg, Renco and Fiat plan to buy it.
"Among these interested parties, three have been selected to continue negotiations on an acquisition of Saab," the company said in the document. "These negotiations will be carried out during the remainder of May in order to select the final candidate."
So, we got three, then two, now three again. Let's just hope that the battle will finally come down to only one whose identity is, as we said, expected to be revealed this week.
